The buying/selling process in Thailand is much quicker and easier than that of the UK, if buying off plan everything can be done via email and the only time the buyer will need to be present in Thailand is when signing for the keys on delivery of the property but even this can be done by a trusted 3rd party by means of the buyer authorizing Power of Attorney. Paying for the property is also an easy process which can be done by bank transfer from the buyer’s bank to the developer’s bank and each time a payment is received an official receipt is sent to the buyer along with a bank certificate confirming the amount received in Thai Baht. If purchasing a re-sale property often the transaction and transfer of Title Deeds can be complete within just a few days, the transfer of Title Deeds is done at the Government Land Office where both the seller and buyer sign at the same time, again this can done by Power of Attorney, when buying a re-sale property a Clearance Certificate is obtained on the property proving the property has no debt attached to it.
